New Features: Mobile and More

Have you logged in lately? There have been many new changes to ArcZap! But here are the major changes and new features:

1) Look and feel

We went with a friendlier interface this time with a softer color scheme and friendlier fonts. The event calendar is easy to navigate and the side menus have been consolidated.

2) Navigation bar

Groups, Events, and Messages  now share the side navigation bar with easy access from the top

3) Mobile friendly

Look for events on the go and upload photos right away! We want to make searching for your next party fast and easy.

4) Goodbye to “spam” emails

Emails are no longer sent immediately but instead come in a single daily summary email.

However, you can choose to receive event invites and reminders immediately.

Emailing your group alias will stay normal but comments, updates, and messages will be sent in a summary email once a day.

5) Event Reminders Revamped

Event Reminders are individualized and you can have it text you, email you or both.

6) Event editor

If you own a community or a group, there is now an event editor that can tell you when there are errors in events to be corrected. Tutorials for this will be given to those who curate events.

7) Are you sponsored by a community?

Groups who have a sponsor community, can see the community events amongst your group events. This reduces your need to check both places.

 


 

Now… screenshots can only show you so much. So, try out some of these features for yourself!

What should I do this Spring Break?

Now that Spring Break has started, what is everyone doing?

For some of us, we are traveling in Hawaii for 8 days and sipping on lemonade (or a Mai Tai) on the beach.

*sigh* "I wish I was here"
*sigh* “I wish I was here”

For others, we were too busy during Winter Quarter or too broke to plan an actual vacation. We are sitting at home contemplating on either staying in PJs for the rest of break or going out with our friends.

"All I want to do is lay in bed and watch Netflix all day"

Why not do both? Sleep in, do a Netflix Binge, and go to an event somewhere close!

You may be thinking, “Huh? An event? Nothing ever goes on here…”
